Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Audi Cabriolet

Bring your 1996 Audi Cabriolet to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Cabriolet’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1996 Audi Cabriolet be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Audi Cabriolet battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Cabriolet stranded. Your Audi Cabriolet could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1996 Audi Cabriolet's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1996 Cabriolet. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1996 Audi Cabriolet? We can help with that, too!
